    That really was a harmless, unchoreographed celebration. That was a gmae changer, but..oh well. This has been a freaky year so far.

    Certainly a lot of meaningless coulda-woulda-shouldas. This team could very easily be 3-1 or even 4-0, but the littel things have become bigs things, and here were are. But we can't live in the past.

    Believe it or not, I'm still holding to my 10-6 and division crown prediction--though we may have to share the crown.
